This invention relates to mobile telecommunications devices, in particular mobile telephones, and peripheral devices giving current mobile telephones greater functionality. Specifically, the present invention relates to mobile telephones having an internal colour printer.
In recent years, the commercially successful models of mobile telephones have been the ones which have been the most compact The desire for small size has prevented other devices, most notably printers, from being incorporated into the housings of mobile telephones.
Prior art printers incorporate a supply of print media into the printer and employ a print media feed mechanism to transport the print media past the printhead(s) to effect printing onto the print media. It is essential during a printing operation to synchronise the speed of the print media with the printing rate of the printhead(s) to ensure a faithful reproduction of the image being printed. Heretofore, the synchronisation of the print media with the printhead(s) has been relatively simple to accomplish because the print media feed mechanism, including the supply of print media, forms an integral part of the printer. The speed of the print media is therefore known and fixed, as is the speed at which the printhead(s) and print controller operate, with synchronisation between these features being accomplished using simple mechanical features such as gears, stepper motors and the like.
Such features however, in particular the need to have a supply of print media accommodated within the printer, have made these printers larger and heavier than they otherwise need be. Even in more compact printers employing a monolithic page-width drop-on-demand printhead arrangement of the type described in the above mentioned co-pending applications, where the printhead is fixed, there is still a need to have a supply of print media and a print media drive mechanism integral to the printer to ensure proper synchronisation between ink ejection and the motion of the print media Up until now these requirements have limited the minimum possible printer size and have precluded the possibility of a printer being incorporated into a device such as a compact mobile telephone.

The invention will now be described by way of example only with reference to preferred embodiments and to the accompanying drawings in which:—
With reference to
An exploded view of the telephone 100 is illustrated in
A rigid printed circuit board (PCB) 312 is held firmly between the upper moulding 301 and base moulding 302. As is known, the PCB 312 contains the majority of the telephone circuitry, in particular a speaker 313, colour LCD display 314 and an aerial 315. A SIM card 316 containing ID codes and command circuitry as is known in the art is received in an internal aperture 319 in the base moulding 302 and electrically communicates with the PCB 312 in a known manner.
The base moulding 302 has a recess 321 in its upper surface that receives the PCB 312 and aerial 315. A cut-away section is provided in the lower portion of the base moulding 302 to receive a standard mobile telephone battery 322 and the printer unit 10, further details of which are described below.
The base moulding 302 further includes charging contact apertures 323, power socket aperture 324 and hands free jack aperture 325.
The cover moulding 303 removably fits with the base moulding 302 to provide an access to the battery 322 and SIM card 316.
Details of the printer unit 10 will now be described with reference to FIGS. 2 to 4. Although FIGS. 2 to 4 depict a stand-alone swipe printer, having a slightly different shape from the printer depicted in
An exploded view of the printer 10 is shown in
The upper and lower mouldings each include media slides 14 formed at each end of the mouldings on the bottom surface thereof. The slides 14 protrude from the bottom surface of the mouldings and serve to elevate the printer as the printer traverses the print media resulting in minimal friction between the printhead and print media and preventing contact between the printer and freshly printed ink which could otherwise disturb the printed image.
When joined, the upper and lower mouldings reveal an ink ejection slot through which ink is ejected during printing. A capping device 50, preferably of metal is received in a recess 17 formed in the upper moulding 12. The capping device 50, moves from a position in which a capping arm 52 of the capper 50 blocks the ink ejection slot 15 to a position where ink ejection is unrestricted.
Internally, the printer 10 includes a printhead module 30 in which is disposed a plurality of ink distribution channels leading to an array of ink ejection nozzles 31 aligned with the ink ejection slot 15 formed between the upper and lower mouldings 12, 11. An ink supply cartridge 32 stores coloured inks, preferably in four colours namely cyan, magenta, yellow and black, to provide for full colour printing. Alternatively, or in addition, infra-red ink may be provided. The ink cartridge 32 supplies ink to the ink distribution channels of the printhead module 30 through an ink connector 33.
Any one of a number of known printhead modules and ink supply systems may be suitable for use with the present invention and thus further description of such features is omitted here. Details of printhead modules and ink supply systems suitable for use with the invention can be found in the above-mentioned co-pending applications of the present applicant.
A print controller 36 includes a microprocessor that converts image data stored in microprocessor memory into a sequence of electrical “drop ejection” signals. The signals are communicated to the printhead module 30 in a known manner during a print operation to cause selective ejection of ink from the ink ejection nozzles 31.
The print control microprocessor 36 communicates with the circuitry of the PCB 312 to receive print instructions and digital image data.
When the printer unit 10 is properly engaged in the mobile telephone 100, power contacts of the printer unit (not shown) connect with the power supply circuits of the mobile telephone.
As illustrated in
To perform printing, a user commands the printer using the navigation keys 102 and actuates the capper 50, in a manner described below, to expose the printhead chip 30 (
To control the printing rate, the printer 10 includes an optical encoder wheel 39 (
The optical sensor includes a light source, such as an LED, and a photo-detector that produces an electrical response dependent upon the amount of light incident upon the detector. The light reflection characteristics of the encoder wheel 39 vary between the marked and un-marked areas and thus as the markings rotate past the detector, a change in the detector response occurs. The frequency at which the detector response changes provides a measurement of the speed at which the encoder wheel is rotating and therefore the speed at which the telephone is moving relative to the print media.
The detector response is communicated to the print control microprocessor 36 which uses the signal to calculate the speed at which the printhead module is being moved across the print media. The print controller then synchronises the rate at which the drop ejection control signals are passed to the ink ejection nozzles with the measured speed of the printer. The printer 10 is therefore able to ensure appropriate print dot spacing of successive lines of print and thus create a faithful reproduction of the printed image even though the printer does not control the speed at which the print media moves relative to the printhead.
Furthermore, if the number of markings on the encoder wheel 39 is high enough, the microprocessor 36 is able to quickly adapt to the variations in the speed at which a user may move the printer across the print media thereby achieving a higher quality image.
An idler wheel 44 is attached to the opposite end of the printhead module 30 to allow stability and directional control of the printer. A shaft may connect the idler wheel 44 with the encoder wheel 39 to synchronise the rotation speeds of each wheel.
The optical encoder wheel 39 and/or idler wheel 44 may have a speed limiter such as a friction clutch that prevents a user from moving the printer along the print media at a rate faster than the maximum rate of operation of the printhead module 30. Furthermore, either or both wheels may have a system such as a ratchet for preventing the printer from being moved in a direction opposite to the direction of printing.
In the embodiment shown, digital image data may be provided to the microprocessor 36 from an external image source via a wireless telecommunications network and received via the antenna 315 and PCB 312.
Alternatively, the digital image data may be received from an external device such as a computer using an infra-red (IR) signal transmitted through an IR window formed in the casing of the mobile telephone. In such an embodiment an IR receiver electrically connected to the microprocessor 36 receives the data which is then stored in the processor memory. In alternative embodiments (not shown), the microprocessor may communicate through any other suitable connection for example, hard wire connections to other electronic devices (such as computers, scanners, copiers, digital cameras), wireless telecommunications (such as WAP) or through a plug and socket connection or data port. Other information, for example print control instructions, may also be provided to the printer from external devices using the above systems. In a further embodiment, the microprocessor may have its own graphics generating capabilities.
For example, as depicted in
In the embodiment described herein, the printer unit 10 includes a replaceable ink cartridge. As an alternative, the mobile telephone 100 may be provided with an integral ink reservoir that is charged with ink from an ink charging stand using an ink charging system, further details of which are provided in the present applicant's co-pending applications (Attorney Docket numbers AP52 and AP53) cross-referenced above. An ink charging system of the type referred to above utilses ink inlets 327 of the print unit 10 as seen in
Actuation of the capping mechanism 50 to its uncapped position can occur in any suitable manner, including but not limited to those examples described in the applicant's co-pending application (Attorney Docket No AP44) cross-referenced above. For example, actuation of the capper may occur using a friction clutch operating in conjunction with the encoder wheel 39, a solenoid actuator, or a finger-operated actuator exposed through the casing of the mobile telephone 100.
The configuration of the printhead module and ink reservoir within the telephone casing may be varied to suit the particular model and styling of the telephone. The embodiments described previously utilise a side-edge printhead with an integral recharging ink reservoir.
Alternative embodiments include configurations where the printhead is exposed through a bottom or top edge of the telephone casing and has either integral or replaceable ink cartridges as required.
While the invention has been described with particular reference to mobile telephones, it will be apparent to the person skilled in the art that the invention is suitable for application in many other portable electronic devices, including but not limited to, Wireless Internet Access Devices (WIADs) in particular Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) terminals, pagers, Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs) and the like.
While particular embodiments of this invention have been described, it will be evident to those skilled in the art that the present invention may be embodied in other specific forms without departing from the essential characteristics thereof. The present embodiments and examples are therefore to be considered in all respects as illustrative and not restrictive, the scope of the invention being indicated by the appended claims rather than the foregoing description, and all changes which come within the meaning and range of equivalency of the claims are therefore intended to be embraced therein.
